Louise Bourgeois & Pablo Picasso: Anatomies of Desire


Coupling the works of Louise Bourgeois and Pablo Picasso—at first glance, an unlikely pair—results in a thought-provoking discourse on the artists’ formal and iconographic links. Inspired by archaic and primitive sources, both Bourgeois and Picasso continually explored and developed interpretations of fertility and mother deities; late in life, both artists focused on eroticism, sexuality, and intimacy. In summer 2019, objects from these pivotal twentieth-century artists will be presented at Hauser & Wirth Zürich, marking the first two-person show in which a female sculptor’s works are put into an extended dialogue with those of Picasso.

The Artist

LOUISE BOURGEOIS

Louise Bourgeois, (b. 1911, Paris, France; d. 2010, New York, USA) used the body as a primary form to explore the human condition. From poetic drawings to room-sized installations, she physically manifested her anxieties in order to exorcise them. Memory, love, fear, and abandonment are at the core of her complex and renowned body of work.
